Where's the sand?

The course is in nice shape, but not enough sand in the traps. The bases of the traps were hard pan, so it was difficult to get the ball out correctly. Really slow foursome in front of us, and the ranger apparently did not care.

Conditions were excellent except for the sand traps.

There wasn’t much soft sand .

First Time

Have played the other Mercer courses, Mercer Oaks, and told by players there to try Mountain View. Finally got the day and tee time, and happy I made the ride to play. Easy walking course, was in good shape, lots of sloping fairways and side-hill 2nd shots, and quite a few downhill putts on the front 9. Would play again and recommend.

Nice course, except 1 thing

Beautiful course well laid out. Forgiving doglegs, great staff, but no portable toilets. Covid, or no Covid, they need toilets.
It’s too nice to not give us a choice when other course have them. Only an idiot doesn’t have hand sanitizer or nitrile gloves.

course design

The course was in good condition, the greens were smooth rolling but not too fast, but the design of the holes was boring overall. Limited fairway bunkers, and some similar hole designs stand out for me. One feature I did not like was holes that turn one direction with fairways that run with fairways that slope the other way.

Nice Course

Course was in good shape and staff very friendly. Pace was good on front nine, but somehow on back nine a different foursome appeared on the tee box in front of us and the pace became slow? Finished in 4hr40min. Only saw the ranger on the front nine, so unable to find out what happened?? Had a great meal on the patio after. My only complaint is that we saw beverage cart on the front and assumed we would see the cart again on the back, but unfortunately we never did and it was really hot and could have used some water!! Might be good to advise golfers if no water on the back, so can get something at the turn??

Walking only after 5:30pm

Although the website states that they will not provide carts for tee times after 5:30pm and that you are required to return the cart 15 mins before sunset, which i didnt read until i returned home, they let me purchase my round and the round for my dad (his birthday) with a cart after 5:30 and as we rounded the front nine, we were told that our cart must be returned by 8pm - it was 7:50. We likely could have gotten another 5 or 6 holes in but i wasn't about to have my 74 year old dad carry his bag on his birthdsy.

1. You should have a better disclaimer about this cart requirement before you allow people to purchase a twilight round with a cart
2. Your employees could be a bit nicer when they surprise you at 7:50 that your round is over in 10 minutes even though there's an hour left of daylight
3. Be accurate. If the website says "15 minutes before sunset," don't tell people they must return the cart by 8pm. Sunset is 8:32, which means we had until 8:15 to return the cart and could have played another hole.

Service at the restaurant was great.

Kudos to the starters

I've played this course many times. Yesterday I was going out as a single and the starters went out of their way to let me go out early because I had about 4 holes open before I would catch a two-some. As a storm was approaching, one of them came out to check on me and asked if I needed a ride back to the clubhouse. Thanks a lot!

Perfect conditions

The course was in amazing shape, from tee boxes thru fairways and then the greens were perfect ! Only issue was the slow play, for a course that still has 15 minute tee time spacing, it was slow - we were up on the group in front of us by the 3rd hole. All in all decent day for the great $43 rate we found on Golfnow

Nothing special.

Course itself was ok. Grass was a bit long and some bunkers were littered with pebbles and rocks. Course itself had no particular character. No fun, memorable holes. Rather monotonous. But overall if you’re looking for a quick round or a local place, it’s a decent track.
